R.J. Greer, son of Ricardo Greer, committed to NC State.

A familiar name will be playing in the Petersen Events Center over the next few years, but not for Pitt.

RJ Greer, the son of former Pitt guard Ricardo Greer, chose to commit to the NC State Wolfpack over the weekend, choosing Kevin Keatts’ program over Dayton, Penn State, Florida, and more. He visited Pitt years ago and received an offer from the Panthers on August 2, 2022, but did not end up including Jeff Capel’s squad in his top schools list. Pitt has been recruiting other guards in the 2025 class for a while, a list that includes Derek Dixon, Meleek Thomas, and more.

Greer is the No. 100 overall recruit in the 2025 class according to 247 Sports. He is a four-star prospect, and currently plays his high-school ball for Archbishop Alter in Dayton, Ohio.

Greer’s father, Ricardo senior, played four seasons at Pitt from 1997-2001. He averaged 12+ points per game in each of his first two seasons with the Panthers, and took his game to another level as an upperclassmen, posting averages of 18.1 and 16.6 points per game as a junior and senior, respectively.

Greer was a two-time All Big East selection, and was named as the 1999-2000 Big East Most Improved Player as well. He finished his Pitt career with 1,753 points and 888 rebounds. He is now the associate head coach for Dayton Men’s Basketball in the Atlantic 10.

Amari Evans, a former Bishop Canevin guard, is set to visit the program later this month. He now plays for Overtime Elite in Atlanta, Georgia, along with Thomas, the former Lincoln Park five-star guard. Pitt has also extended offers to 2025 prospects Isaiah Denis, Nikola Bundalo, Acaden Lewis, and more.

Doesn’t say much if you can’t land a legacy recruit. A 4 star one at that.
